About Alexa

A South Florida-based freelance writer, self-published author, and rising MFA student, I've been writing with bylines since 2011, but picked up creative writing when I was ten. I received my bachelor's degree in communication from the University of Miami in 2017 and will begin a fiction MFA program at the University of Massachusetts Boston in September 2019.

My work has appeared in New York University's award-winning Washington Square News, my alma mater's award-winning The Miami Hurricane, and online music magazine EUPHORIA.

Presently, I write local stories for Gulfstream Media Group's publications (stories published in Boca Life, The Palm Beacher, Fort Lauderdale Daily, and Jupiter magazines) and The Boca Raton Observer, and am open to new opportunities. My first novel, 27 Stories, a work of young adult fiction, was published in April 2018.

"In Writing" is my lexicon, in a way: this project is my word on what really matters— creativity, culture, wellness, and social and political issues— as well as short fiction and the occasional poem. You can find posts sorted by category under the "Blog" tab, and follow along on Medium, where I post more often. See my full portfolio here
